imageFrom Dogfish Head:

Dogfish Head announced to it’s employees this morning that Nick Benz woul be leaving his role as CEO:

This from Sam Calagione at Dogfish Head:

“Nick has played an incredibly important role as a leader and brilliant business mind helping us grow in our own intentionally off-centered direction. His legacy is rich with accomplishments from overseeing the physical expansion of our state-of-the-art brewery to his stewardship of our collaborative culture.  I think his greatest accomplishment has been nurturing, motivating, and growing the most talented & awesome team of leaders we have ever had in our 21 years.  As we build our 2017 plan around our innovative products and amazing people, I can honestly say I have never been more excited for the future of Dogfish than I am right now.”

From Nick:

“I love Dogfish and everything it stands for.  My journey started by adopting Sam’s dream then somewhere along the way I called it my own dream.  I’ve given Dogfish my all for 13-plus years and starting in 2017 it is time for me to do the same for my wife and 3 young children.  I will always have fond memories of my time at Dogfish.  It is comforting to know my fellow co-workers will ensure the vision of Dogfish stays alive and well.”
